2 Macintosh apples
2 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pinch ground clove
¼ teaspoon nutmeg

½ Tablespoon vanilla bean paste
1 cup white sugar
3 cups flour
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup orange juice
1 cup vegetable oil
1 ½ tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
4 eggs
Recommended ingredients: use fresh apples from your local apple orchard.  I highly recommend taking some time out of your busy life and spend a few hours picking apples with your family and or friends. I promise ….It will make your life a little sweeter and the cake!

Step 7: continue mixing until all ingredients come together forming a smooth cake batter


Step 8:  fold apples into cake batter

Step 11: bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until a cake tester or wooden skewer is inserted and removed cleanly
